play you something that john mccain said today. he was in ohio supporting the gop senate candidate but said very nasty words about the president and the 9/11 libya attack. take a listen to this. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up concealing from the american people or is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. >> karen, like many of us, we respect mr. mccain's service to this nation both politically and militarily, but is it really appropriate on a day like this to start giving a commentary about the president of the united states in those tones? >> and also it's just very disappointing, martin. i think this is the complete political transformation of john mccain that we've seen. i used -- like you, i have had great respect for john mccain and he knows as well as anyone, and condoleezza rice herself went out and made the point in terms of the things that happened in benghazi and that information was changesiing, th that's what's happening. you have to gather all of the information and try to put togethe
of the community. john, as i observe these pictures, we were talking earlier about mitt romney spending this whole campaign promising that he was the one person in america who could bridge the partisan divide, and look at those images and tell me, is the president not embodying bipartisanship at this very moment in front of you? >> exactly, exactly. the president has been someone who has reached across the aisle, or at least has tried to reach across the aisle, to work with republicans for at least the last two years and has been smacked back every time, and the republicans have named that, namely the top of the ticket, has used that as why they think the president has failed and why mitt romney is the one who can go to washington and reach across the aisle and work with members of congress to get things done for the country. and yet here you have the president of the united states with mitt romney's chief and bombastic surrogate there, together, in a state that's been ravaged by hurricane sandy, working together. and on top of it, you have had chris christie singing the president's praises the fo
the president as some kind of other. >> something to be scared of. >> and john sununu, the inspector of john sununu said the only reason that colin powell is supporting barack obama is because he's black. the same guy who basically said he's got to learn how to be an american. very clear from the beginning what this strategy was all about. >> we know that so shoe shoe joa vat of poison. i was here a day after reporting of 9/11. unfortunately that's not the only thing we remember about mr. giuliani. take a listen to this. >> the greatest country on earth, the greatest country in the history of the world, and our growth is at 1.2%. he should resign. >> now, we're obviously concerned for the mental health of rudy giuliani, but we also know that he loves opera and he appeared to be close to some kind of physical explosion. >> i mean, in all seriousness, though, i think that is a perfect example of why the romney team is going to lose, because the republicans are not living in the world of reality. you know, the base so hates the president with such a visceral, gutteral hatred they can't understa
we saw a real sharp contrast between john mccain and president obama, and i think people, you know, times like this you look to your leaders and see how they hnl handle crises. i think it's not just that he's a quick study. i think he's a very steady lead leader. he's proven that time and again. it is part of being an incumbent that people in a time of crisis get to see how you handle a situation like this. i think he's done a good job. he'll do a good job and that may remind people, this guy is a good guy to have in a storm or a good guy to have in a crisis. it's not just about political study though. >> it is about political study in this calculation with respect to this election, particularly what i've been hearing from the left about how this is going to be some boon or benefit for the president. i don't think the people are looking at it in those terms. i'm certainly as a political analyst don't look at it in those terms. i think the reality of it is the president has an expectation of doing his job. that was one of the shortcomings for george bush was he did not do the job as
are for all intents and purposes connected to this president in this last week. >> john, doesn't it also define who is responsible for the failure of bipartisanship because the president has repeatedly extended his hand, and if someone grasps it, he will work with them. the problem is they have refused to do so. mitch mcconnell has repeatedly refused to do so. boehner tried to. eric cantor, no thanks. that's the reality, isn't it? >> well, this is what -- yes, it is the reality, and what's unfortunate about some of these articles that are coming out that are essentially endorsing romney like david brooks' column saying, well, romney will be able to get along better with congress, but the message that this would send is that obstructionism and just complete refusal to compromise pays off. so one of the important things to do in this election is to vote for compromise. vote for this kind of bipartisanship. vote for working across the aisle. don't validate mitch mcconnell and eric cantor and john boehner's strategy. their whole strategy was to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct and get a new pres
for the president of the john burch society. the idea he would not be a marionette is betrayed by the facts of the campaign. >> the wonderful character of willard mitt romney. julian, dana -- sorry, that's wrong, julian, michelle, cottle, and professor james peterson, thank you so much. and if you can't get enough, we have got a special election edition live from democracy plaza at 30 rock tomorrow, saturday night, at 7:00 p.m. so please do join us. next, if you can't keep them from the polls, keep them from casting their vote. stay with us. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh! [ male announcer ] taste it and describe the indescribable. could've had a v8. [ male announcer ] taste it and describe the indescribable. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hun
